Top Gun showed us the limits that Tom Cruise’s Pete Maverick Mitchell is willing to go beyond just so he could be one above the notch. The movie is heralded as a mother of all cult classics for a reason. Top Gun was a movie that did not rely on many special effects or too much melodrama. They had a good and talented but young star cast, Tom Cruise and a good storyline. But the highlight of the movie was not the actors. It was the Fighter Jets, the big brimming steel monsters with wings that soared through the skies and cut it into two like a hot knife through butter.
With Top Gun 2 going on in full swing, the fan are eager to know that if Tom Cruise will be given new sets of wings to soar high again. Looks like he is!! Presenting – Top Gun 2 Set Photo reveals Cruise will pilot a deadly new fighter jet!!!
In 1986’s Top Gun, Cruise rides what is famously known as an F-14 Tomcat fighter jet. It is an interceptor and an air superiority fighter with swept wing technology, a technology that was way ahead of its time when the Tomcat ruled the skies. Maverick and Iceman rode the Tomcat which got them through heaps of trouble and delivered when the situation was at its direst. But the Tomcat has been retired from active service since 2006.
Top Gun was an old movie and since the sequel is coming out thirty-two years later, Top Gun: Maverick cannot afford to make Tom Cruise ride that powerful but old beast again. Cruise needs a fighter jet that is advanced enough to leave the contenders behind. And he has got just the thing in the movie which is currently in production.
Top Gun: Maverick will be released in the year 2020 only and the studio has already released a photo of the futuristic-looking aircraft that will give Cruise’s Maverick the need for speed again. The photo comes courtesy of Revenge of the Fans. Here is the picture we are talking about:

And Paramount Pictures has recently confirmed that Maverick has never left the Air Force since 1986 in terms of movie continuity. That would mean Maverick has given more than thirty years of his life to the service.
